Not Clutched in Her Hand Gives
Poor Health as Reason for
Rockford, EL. Jan. 24. (Special)
Instant death by decapitation was the
form of suicide resorted to last night
by a young (woman who hurled herself
in front of a fast Illinois Central pas
senger train here at the Kent 6treet
crossing, and who today was identified
as Miss Kugenla Lincke, a Rock Is
land woman who came here last sum
mer. The head of the young woman was
found lying Just outside the south rail
of the main track at a point CO feet
west of Kent street, almost at the in
tersection of the street and track. The
body was discovered between the rails
and about 90 feet beyond this th
jacket of the victim had been cast
aside by the engine.
LABORERS MAKE niSPOVERV.
These circumstances would indi
cate that an eastbound train bad been
the death-dealer. Two laborers were
startled as they stumbled on the head
less body, but continued their search
until they found the head a few feet
away. Aside from the decapitation anu
the mangling of the fingers the body
was not disfigured to any extent and
identification can be made readily by
anyone knowing the victim. The low
er limbs were crossed, but not marred,
while the upper part of the body was
uninjured save for a gash on the left
arm near the shoulder. Her clothes
around the waist were torn, evidently
from where 6he had been rolled under
the pilot of the engine.

FRIENDS FALL OUT
One Start for Home With Part of

Fred McNeil and John Restue, both
young fellows residing in the country
south of here, are lying in Jail as the
result of a disagreement they had this
afternoon. They were in the city do
ing a little celebrating, in the course
of which they imbibed rather freely of
liquor. Both had a fairly good sized
roll of money when they came to the
city, but at noon Fred, who had bean
doing most of the buying, was down
on the ragged edge, only 10 cents be
ing left in his pocket. John, in the
meantime, felt his pocketbook, an
upon finding that it contained some
$44, decided that there is no place like
home, and he told his friend he was
going to head south before his pile
was gone. McNeil couldn't see any
reason for going home as long as they
had the wherewithal for some more
booze, and he kicked strenuously on
Rcstue's proposal. They had arrived
at the Peoria depot by this time and
there they continued their argument.
Feople waiting at the station thought
That t was a case of fleecing Restue
out of bis money, and the police were
railed. McNeil got away, but was lo-
cated later at a Ealoon across the
street, where he was disposing of his
last 10 cents. The young men proba
bly will be dismissed in the morning
when they sober up, as there is no
charge lodged against them.

Old Blue Goose Besort Is Scene
of Fight in Which Many
Shots Are Fired.
TWO NEGROES ARE FINED
Harry Howard and James Moore
Start Trouble at Late Hour
A small sized riot in which numer -
ous revolver shots were fired, occurred
last night at a late hour as the result
of a fight which took place at the
Quail saloon, a negro resort on First
avenue between Nineteenth and Twen -
tieth streets. Harry Howard and
James Moore, both colored, were ar-
rested, they having started the trou-
ble. They had a disagreement and
blows were exchanged. Moore drew
discolored optic. The fight became a
melee and revolvers were brought in
to play, but no one was injured so far
as has been learned. Four policemen
went to the scene in response to a call
from the saloon and Howard and
Moore were taken to the station. This
morning they mere sent to Jail for
five days each, upon their failure to
pay fines of $50 and costs.

FOR $5,000 HOUSE
American Woman's League
Expects to Have Branch
Chapter Erected Here.
ONLY 35 MEMBERS NEEDED
Lrn-al Body Must Procure Lot, but
Building, Fully Equipped, Will
Be Provided Free.
By Increasing the local member
ship of the American Woman's
league from 105 to 140 the chapter
in this city will be granted a class 4
chapter house free of charge. The
only stipulations are that the mem
bership be 140 and that the lot ou
which to build the chapter house be
secured. This chapter house will be
built at a cost of $5,000 and will be
fully equipped. It will be one-story
and will be of sufficient size to af
ford to the women of the city a
place for meeting, resting, etc.
This increase in membership must
be secured before Feb. t, in order
that advantage may be taken in the
proposition. At a meeting last nigh;,
held in the parlors of the New Har
per, Miss Clara Hampton, who is 'n
charge of the affairs of the leag-ie
in this city, thoroughly explained the
proposition which is made to the
members of the league.
KINAI. I1KCISIOV Fill DAY.
Rock Island is really of sufficient
population to secure a chapter
house of class u. a structure of two Feb. 2S as a candidate for conimis
stories. But this is probably im-! sioner. Mr. Wilson is president of
possible and an effort will be made; the Arsenal Lunch association and
to secure the class 4 structure. With
the present membership the local
chapter is entitled to a " class 3
structure. Another meeting will be
held next Friday evening, at whirh ,
it is hoped 'that a large majority of
the local members will be present
for the purpose of deciding Just what
shall be done in the matter.
Men. women and children have a
right to membership in the league,
but certain privileges are of course
given to the women that are not giv
en to the men. At the present time
eacn person pajs o- iur uieuiuvrsuijj ;
!n the leaeue and this will be the
fee till Feb. 1, when it will be rais
ed to $100. The intention is to
limit the league to 100,000 members
and when that number is reached
persons will only be admitted when
some one of the membership dies,
thus keeping the number at 100.000.
IS MAGAZINE KMKHrRl'E.
When the membership fee has
been paid, the matter does not rest
there. Requirement for membership
consists in securing subscriptions or
buying and using subscription cer
tificates for the magazines which are
included in the list of the league.
For each subscription for the first
year the league receives one half
and after the first year, on renewal
subscriptions, the league receives
one-fourth of the original amount.
Aside from this, each league
member is entitled to a course in the
People's university, without adT!
tional cost. Courses by correspond
ence are given in almost all branches.
The league has organized a cjty of
its own, just outside of St. Iouls,
known as the University City.

organization. Instead of endowing a
university or library, has given an
endowment to this league. The
league has a publication of Its own.

one million per day. Mr. Lewis is
at the head of the publication.
IS BURIED IN ST. LOUIS
Mrs. Adah New-man I Laid at Rest
la Old Home.
John Newman, husband, and Miss
Helen Kulp and Mrs. Louisa Haines,
sisters of deceased, have returned from
St. Louis, where they attended the funer
al Sunday of Mrs. Adah Newman, who
suicided at her heme, 423 Forty-fifth

acid. The funeral was from the home
of Mr. and Mrs. Daniel Kulp, parents
of Mrs. Newman, 1611 North Twen
tieth street, St. Louis, and burial was
in Freeden's cemetery.
"My wife had been ailing of heart
trouble and nervousness two years,"
Mr. Newman said, "and it was un
doubtedly her hopeless physical con
dition that drove her to self-destruction.
Contrary to an Impression that
appears to have gained ground, our
home life was happy. I had not been
drinking on the day of her suicide, as
has been charged. Miss Helen Kulp,
my wife's sister, was in the house at
the time. I had come home at noon
from my work, and was seated in the

VAN I EST PAYS $ 5.10
FINE FOR LOVE TAP
His Joy Over Meeting Old Friend
Causes Him to Grow Hurt
Charles Vaniest paid Police Magis
trate C. J. Smith $3 and costs, amount
ing in all to $5.10, this morning as the
result of his having been too demon
strative in his joy at meeting an. old
friend. Charles went into the Verblest
saloon on Fifth avenue near Twenty
sixth street last night to get a schoon
er of beer. Standing at the bar was
Alphonse Van Amme, with whom Van
iest had been on terms of close friend
ship for 20 years past. They had net
seen each other for a long time and
Vaniest was overjoyed at sight of his
old friend. Without saying a word he
walked up behind Van Amme and gave
him a resounding slap over the head
with his han'd, in which the beer glass
still reposed. Van Amme mistook the
love tap for an invitation to fight, and
without taking time to learn the iden
tity of his supposed assailant, pounced
upon him. Vaniest hastened to explain
who he was and that he had meant no
harm, and after a time his explana
tions were given credence and the dove
of peace reigned supreme. The two
friends rushed into each other's, arms
and everything was- harmonious again.
The police had been summoned, how
ever, and Vaniest paid for the trouble
he had made .

P. MATGASIC LAST
So Countrymen of Austrian, All
With One Storyj Testify
at Coroner's Inquiry.
JOE P0LIM0TS IS WANTED
Has Police Record and Is Believed to
Have Gone to Kewanre Sev
eral Weeks Ago.
After hearing the evidence of sev
eral Austrian who knew and lived
with Povas Matgasic, who was found
dead Saturday afternoon in the
slough at Eighteenth avenue and
MilL street, the coroner's Jury yes
terday afternoon again took a recess
and will reconvene tomorrow after
noon at 3 o'clock at the Knox under
taking rooms. In the meanwhile the
police are making an effort to locate
Joe Polimots, who went from this
city to Kewanee several weeks ago
and who was last seen with the mur
dred man here.
Po'llmots is a man who has a po
lice record in this city and has been
a boarder at different times at the
county jail. It is expected that he
will either shed some light on the
murder mystery or that he will
have a difficult time in accounting
for his actions since last seen by
STORIES ARE SIMILAR.
Everyone of the witnesses yester
day afternoon told stories which
were much alike in important de
tails. Few of them remembered hav
ing seen Matgasic when be had any
considerable amount of money. His
landlord stated that he was prompt
in payment of his board bills. He
stated, as did 'others, that the last
time he saw the murdered man was
Christmas day, when he was at his
home. Some of the witnesses stated
Matgasic owed them money, but none
of the amounts were very large. He
apparently borrowed money from
them shortly before , the Christmas
holidays and did not give a note or
any other document to secure pay
ment. The witnesses had known Mat
gasic but three months, and during
that time he had resided at the Aus-
trian boarding house on Fourth
street above Sixth avenue. All of
the witnesses reside in that vicinity.
nin !OT MINGLE.
Until Sunday, they all said, they
had thought that Matgasic had gone
to Kewanee with Polimots and only
learned of his death Sunday, when
they were subpoenaed by the police
officers. Matgasic seldom mingled
with his countrymen. The witnesses
were all allowed to return to their
homes last night, but they will be
under surveillance till the mystery
is cleared. It is possible that some
of them know a little more than they
told yesterday, although they were
questioned thoroughly by Coroner J.
F. Rose and the jurors.
The body of Matgasic is In horrible
condition. Today it is being thawed
so that it will be possible to exam
ine it to ascertain whether or not
there are bruises of any nature
which might have been inflicted with
a weapon and caused death.
